Claude Monet (French, 18401926) first painted his water lily pond at Giverny in 1899 and it dominated his art for the rest of his life. A key figure in the Impressionist movement that transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century, Monet worked en plein air using rapid brushstrokes and broken colour, the signatures of the new style. Working in natural light and shifting seasons, Monet returned to his subjects again and again in order to capture every observation, nuance, and reflection. He never grew tired of painting the evocative water lilies of his beloved Giverny.
Claude Monet (French, 18401926) left much of his late work unfinished and released few paintings for sale, reporting that he was not yet satisfied and was still working on them “with passion.” This canvas is one of four water-lily pictures that, quite exceptionally, he did complete, sign, and sell in 1919. Lithographic print. Mounted in a champagne-silver wood frame. Includes hardware for hanging. 18 1/4”H x 36 1/2”W.
